The Humboldt County Independent Business Alliance (HumIBA) was a coalition of locally-owned independent businesses, citizens and community organizations united to support hometown businesses in Humboldt County.
Independent Business Alliances are a proven tool for protecting unique community character, ensuring continued opportunities for entrepreneurs, building local economic strength, and preventing the displacement of locally-owned businesses by chains.
HumIBA worked to ensure that the decision-making power over our community’s future remains with the people who live here.
We published the Local Options Directory - a print and online directory listing over 600 independently-owned businesses.
The HumIBA was a Democracy Unlimited Partner.
